Friday, November 18, 2016

An 18-year-old has been charged with supporting a terrorist organisation after translating Islamic State (Isis) propaganda. 

The German teenager reportedly posted the propaganda and corrected errors in some texts in an online group.

Federal German prosecutors say he faces nine counts of supporting Isis, after allegations were made that he'd been in contact with the organisation since the middle of 2016.

It is alleged that he contacted Isis offering to translate texts to English, German and Turkish, as well as correcting any linguistic errors.

Reports claim he posted one translation and eight corrected texts online, in June. He has been in custody since July.
